The Essence of GDPM

The essence of GDPM is not about slavishly following a process. It is all about people interaction, gaining consensus and engagement. 'Those who deliver - do plan the project'. It is also iterative - embedding risks, stakeholder management and other activities back into the plan to make the milestones more robust. This means that risks and issues are not managed in isolation but as part of the normal project delivery progress review.
